Arcade coverage: Banpresto

Borp

Blooper
So I went on a mad quest to find information about two arcade units already covered on the wiki, and that led me to discovering even more. Sadly, all I could find was a handful of blogs with pics of the machines in the wild along with a few YouTube and NicoNico videos. Nevertheless I opted to make a series of threads so I could give everybody access to the pics and videos and the places I found them. First, we'll look at various machines produced by Banpresto.

Mario World
マリオワールド
Release date: 1991, according to this page. That's literally the only source I could find on this game's release.
Pictures:


The first picture is taken from this blog post: http://ameblo.jp/kodomoyo/entry-10044018639.html
Apparently it's some sort of blog that seeks out and discusses medal machines. I should be thankful such a blog exists. I couldn't find any other blogs or sites that cover it at all. Based on the design of the machine it seems to be a basic electronic roulette wheel where you press one of those colorful buttons to bet and press the start button to sent the wheel spinning. Here's the complete body of text taken from the blog post, if anybody wants to do a proper translation:

バンプレスト製
マリオワールド

1~4BETまで可能。
メダルを入れるとボタンの上のキャラクターがひかり、
各1枚までBETすることが出来る。
配当は2・4・6・8枚がBETボタンから、16枚・0枚が特殊役となる。
It was later mentioned again in another post on the same blog: http://ameblo.jp/kodomoyo/theme-10003515974.html
The text on there is as follows:

マリオワールド:バンプレスト製
メダルを1枚入れるとBETボタン(左側の4つのボタン)でBETができます。
BETは各1BETのみで、配当は左から2・4・6・8枚、最高枚数は特殊役の16枚です。
自分でルーレットを止めるので、あたりやすいという錯覚を起こしてしまうマシンだったりします。
The second picture is a promotional flyer for the machine and is taken from this page on the old A-SUMA (ALL SUPER MARIO) site: http://www.a-suma.com/old/salepromo/flier/mf-ac.htm
Kikai apparently has no interest in scanning things at a legible size and I could not find any other pictures of this flyer anywhere else, so I guess we'll have to make do with this piddly little scan for now. Here's what he had to say about it, for those willing to translate:

バンプレストもついにマリオに参入!
マリオのアートワークをたくさん使った賑やかなデザイン。
ミニピカデリーと似たメダルゲーム。
Don't be fooled by the game's title either. It really is just "Mario World". Banpresto apparently made another machine with a similar title: "Anpanman World". If you poke around that blog you'll be able to find it.

Next post coming soon!

Televidenwa: Super Mario World
てれびでんわ スーパーマリオワールド
Release date: 1992, according to the game's title screen.

Picture set 1:


These are taken from A-SUMA: http://www.a-suma.com/old/game/ac/smtd/smtd.htm
Judging by the one picture of the manual, it seems ol' Kikai is lucky enough to physically own this machine! I have absolutely no idea how it works. I'm guessing it involves pressing the number pad or listening to the phone receiver or something along those lines. Here's the text from that page if anybody wants to take a crack at it:

1990年にバンプレストより発売されたキッズアミューズメント機「てれびでんわ」 の「スーパーマリオワールド」版。
その名の通り、テレビ画面の付いた電話機のような形をしており、 受話器でキャラクターとおはなしし、問題を解きながら物語を進めていくゲーム。
筐体の大きさは、高さ128cm、横・奥50cm、重さ28kg。
このシリーズは他にも「ドラえもん」や「アンパンマン」など様々なキャラクターで出されていた。
■ゲーム内容
100円玉をコイン投入口に入れると筐体下部からカードが出てくるので、 カードを取り「カード入りぐち」にカードを入れるとゲームスタート。
「1.めいたんていマリオ」「ピーチひめをすくえ!」の2種類のゲームモードがあり、 「1」はパズル系、「2」はアクション系の問題が出される。 1・2・3のボタンを使って回答していく。回答を間違えても物語は進んでいくため、 ゲームオーバーになることはない。ゲームをクリアすると、最後にカードがもらえる。
カードの紹介はまたいつか別ページにて。
Here is a blog post that links to Kikai's page up there: http://yoshiyama3.hatenablog.com/entry/2014/10/06/135213
Here is the body of text that follows it:

コレ憶えてる人が居たら相当「コアなマリオファン」ですよ。

バンプレスト製のゲーセン用筐体「てれびでんわ」
名前の通り「テレビ電話」、マリオと会話を楽しみながら道々の
ミニゲームをクリアしつつクッパの討伐に向かう、確かそんな。

まぁ「会話」とは名ばかりでこちらの問いかけには一切答えずに
「マリオが延々と言葉を投げかけるだけ」なんですけどね、日本語で。
ようするに「スピーカーが受話器の部分になっているだけ」なんですよ。
ゲームが終わると申し訳程度のカードが排出する仕様。

「THE・子供だまし」、まぁ対象が子供だから別に。
でも久しぶりにプレイしたいんスよ、童心に帰って。

バリエーションは他にもいろいろ合って、ドラえもんverとか
ドラゴンボールverとか様々、後期だとポケモンverもあった。
Based on my research, it seems that the machine would spit out Carddass-esque holographic collectible cards after playing a game. I found tons of these on various auction sites. I'll compile them into an album a little bit later.

This picture is taken from here, which I guess is some sort of Twitter-type site: http://www.twitpic.com/5ryczl
The caption underneath reads as follows:

I... can't seem to get it to work. If anybody else can figure out how the hell to get that video to play, please let me know. I just put the link here just in case.

It seems that Banpresto has (or had) a whole line of "Televidenwa" machines, as various others came up in my searches for this one. These include Anpanman (see a patten yet?), Doraemon, Dragon Ball and even Pokémon!

More to come!

Glowsquid and Emmett Brown: Perfect! Now all I need is a way to save it. I also wonder if there are any more videos of that machine floating around out there....

Baby Luigi: Yes, it's the same Banpresto. I'm well aware of their swarths of Mario merchandise, but up until fairly recently I had no idea they also made a bunch of Mario arcade units.

Anyhoo...

Būbū Mario
ブーブーマリオ

This is the game that started this whole mess. It's already covered on the wiki, but I decided to go out and search for more information on it and that ended up leading to the discovery of other machines by the same company. I'm really curious to know where those two pics on there actually came from.

For the record, I STRONGLY recommend that somebody at least try to download the video that's linked to on the wiki page. You never know when it'll get taken down. It could very well end up lost forever!

Picture set 1


These came from here: http://www.a-suma.com/old/exp/mfk/mfk.htm
It's our old pal Kikai again. Here's what he said in each caption:

おお!ブーブーマリオだ!
15年ほど前のモノがあるなんて!
後ろから見たところ
1回200円とちょっと高めの設定
Apparently there is (or was at some point in the past) some kind of indoor amusement area/special event called "Mario Factory" that had a whole bunch of Mario arcade units like the ones I'm posting about. In my attempts to find out more about all these machines I discovered that multiple bloggers went to this place and blogged about it. You'll find out more soon enough. Otherwise I don't know anything else about "Mario Factory".

Picture set 2


This is from here: http://www.arcade-history.com/?n=super-mario-world-bu-bu-mario-ride&page=detail&id=32425
Pretty nice that it managed to make it onto an English language site besides ours, but they have no information on it whatsoever and didn't even get the title of the machine right.

Picture set 3


Taken from this blog post: http://mariofannfumiya.blog105.fc2.com/blog-entry-164.html
This guy also went to "Mario Factory" and blogged about a bunch of stuff he saw there. His caption:

ブーブーマリオやマリオ運動会、
さすがに古いモノだからカードはトーマスらしい。
If anybody wants to translate the rest of that blog post, by all means go right ahead.

These all came from here: http://yushiromariofan2.blog22.fc2.com/blog-entry-4.html
It's yet another blog post, although this person was nice enough to take a lot of pics from every angle. Here's what he had to say:

今日はこれまでのグッズとは一味違ったマリオのゲームマシンを紹介します。

スーパーマリオワールド時代に出回っていたゲームマシン「ブーブーマリオ」。
ゲームセンターなどに良くあるお金(コイン)を入れれば動き出す車型マシンのマリオバージョン。
実際に遊んでいないので良く分かりませんが、
中にはスクリーンもあるのでゲームでも遊べるのかもしれません。
遊び終わった後はカードが1枚貰えるみたいですが、
このマシンからは出てこないようです(汗
古いものなので仕方ありませんね。
「スーパーマリオワールド」を題材にしたマシンなのに、
ハンドル部分にキノピオが描かれているのは気にしない(汗

ちなみに当然ですが、これは自分が持っているワケではありません(笑
ショッピングセンターの隅にある小さなゲームセンターにあったのを撮ってきました。

It's yet another blog post about "Mario Factory", although I'm hella thankful that this person took large pictures of the machines. He also has pictures of some things I couldn't find anywhere else on the web, but I'll get to that in a later post. For now, here are his words:

マリオ関連のゲームが充実している。こちらは「ブーブーマリオ」。
「ブーブーマリオ」で、マリオ&ヨッシーとドライブしよう!
「ブーブーマリオ」プレイ画面。
Like the other posts, if anybody wants to take a crack at translating the whole thing, please go ahead. It'd be much appreciated.

Picture set 6


This is from one last blog post: http://ameblo.jp/snoopy555/entry-10897682103.html
Clearly this person is a big fan of Peanuts. Anyway, here's what their entry says:

買い物に行く途中

I also found several blog posts that I can only assume are by parents, as they were full of pictures of kids playing with the machine. I didn't save those for obvious reasons even though they were pretty clear shots of the machine. If you wanna see them, you can google the game's title yourself.

Finally, here are some YouTube videos:

Like I said before, do not hesitate to download these, lest they disappear under our noses. Well, I'd advise against saving the one with the kid in it. The last thing you want is to be labeled a predator, lol.

Mario Undoukai
マリオうんどうかい

Release date: 1993, per the game's title screen.

This is already covered on the wiki, and it too led me to seek out all this information and ultimately make this thread. The site the wiki initially got its info from is kind of mistaken - the game's title is written in hiragana, not kanji. "Mario Unkurukai" was likely a misreading. Like the previous post I highly recommend somebody save that video linked to in the article for the sake of preservation.

Picture set 1


Culled from here: http://news-act.com/archives/26148940.html
This doesn't seem to be a blog. It looks more like an actual news site of some sort. Here's the caption underneath the two pics of the machine:

ドラえもんカードが出てくる「マリオうんどうかい」、
Although I have a feeling much more information can be gleaned from a translation of the entire post.

Picture set 2


Sadly the second pic is (crudely) watermarked.
They came from here: http://www.rabbitstaff.com/petit/arcade_izutsuya-kokura2005-08.html
Captions are as follows:

スーパーマリオのDDRかなと思ったら

是非次回は、電源が入ってるときに行きたいですね。
This particular machine looks really dirty. I thought Japan was supposed to be super-anal about this stuff.

Picture set 3


This came from here: http://migzou.blog84.fc2.com/blog-entry-213.html
I have to warn you though - it's an awfully long post and I can't find any reference to the machine itself within the text. I'm not sure it would be worth it, but if anybody who reads Japanese wants to skim through and see if it says anything interesting, please go on ahead.

I'd like to point out that this looks like the exact same location that the video on the wiki was filmed at. Get used to seeing that; these machines apparently aren't exactly easy to come by.

Picture set 4

These each came from two different posts on the same blog.
Post number one (the image I nicked from it appears to be broken now): http://mariofannfumiya.blog105.fc2.com/blog-entry-328.html
Post number two: http://mariofannfumiya.blog105.fc2.com/blog-entry-687.html
Both of them look to be about a trip to "Mario Factory". I got a lot of mileage out of that place, whatever it was. Here is your text:

マリオうんどうかい
コレは以前も紹介しましたね。
ただ、2台あったのに1台になってます。
隣のはポックポーンです。
あと、ブーブーマリオもありますが、

そして、『マリオうんどうかい』もプレイしました!

This looks like the same location from the 3rd picture set, only now the machine doesn't look like it works very well. I guess in the eight or so years that passed between these two blog posts the machine deteriorated. That ain't good for preservation. I'm also really curious to know what Mario's text bubble on the face of the machine says. Speaking of, here are this post's captions:

懐かしいスーパーマリオワールドの音楽が聞こえて来ました。
「マリオうんどうかい」(バンプレスト、93年)
画面全然見えないんだけどw 「やあ!ぼくマリオ!」と日本語で喋ります。
マリオにこんなキャラ居たっけ・・・補充のしようが無いのは分かりますがw

This one comes from our ol' friend Kikai's blog: http://allsupermario.blog121.fc2.com/blog-entry-336.html
Surprise surprise, it's a post about his trip to "Mario Factory". What'd have have to say? Well:

「マリオのうんどうかい」などは健在。

From here: http://k1world2.seesaa.net/archives/20120121-1.html
There's no real caption, he just mentions the name of the game. Although I guess if you want to know the name of the location you could translate the rest of the post.

Picture set 8


Remember this post? http://gk.q-q-q-q.com/?p=345
It's from there. He says:

This is just a close-up of the foot pad. It came from here: http://ameblo.jp/hug-goodjob/entry-10280429721.html?frm_src=thumb_module
I'm kinda confused as to what this post is actually about. It's all text save this one picture.

Picture set 10


Found this here: http://cannojp.com/photo/0603toko2F/index01.html
It looks like somebody's photo repository or something. As you can see, it's sideways on that page but I turned it upright myself. It's probably the clearest picture of this machine I have out of any in my collection.

Picture set 11


Finally, we have one more blog post: http://nmt.tank.jp/minna/minna116.htm
(It's the one all the way down at the bottom. There's no way to link directly to it so you'll have to scroll down yourself.)
The caption beneath it reads:

マリオうんどうかい。バンプレスト製。これはコナミに気付かれなかったのだろうか。
And that's all I got for Mario Undoukai. Like Televidenwa, the machine spits out collectible cards when you've finished playing, although I don't think it had a designated set or anything like that.

Making these posts is tiring, so I'll have my next one tomorrow.

Koopa Taiji
クッパたいじ

Release: 1993, according to one of these sites I got these pictures from (assuming I'm remembering this correctly)

This one looks like some sort of ball-throwing game where you have to hit a physical Koopa (Bowser) target.

Picture set 1


From this post: http://famiemon.sblo.jp/article/38765948.html
Sorry, it's a long one. It seems that this particular machine is located in Tokyo Tower. It must be one of the only machines left, because almost every other blogger I found blogged about the exact same one!

Picture set 2


From Arcade History: http://www.arcade-history.com/?n=super-mario-world-kuppa-taiji&page=detail&id=23715
They don't have any information on it either. Nor do they have a solid release date.

Picture set 3


From here: http://d.hatena.ne.jp/masato-dsi/20091103/p1
This is the same machine as the one in the 1st set. For some reason he posted the exact same picture twice in the same post. Maybe that was a mistake and he meant to put up two different pictures? Each caption says:

東京タワーには屋上遊園地があります。

任天堂やマリオのファンが行くと必ず立ち寄る場所でもあります。

そこには「スーパーマリオワールド クッパたいじ」があるのですよ。
左右に動くクッパにボールを制限時間内に当てるというよくあるゲーム。

長年遊ばれてボロボロになってもまだ現役です。

しかし、クッパの両腕は無くなっていて、可哀そうな状態。

ゲーム終了後にはカードも排出されます。

(ただし「マリオパーティ2」のカード)
Picture set 4


Here: http://k1world2.seesaa.net/article/181044156.html
I can't tell if this is Tokyo Tower again or not. He didn't have much to say about the machine either.

Picture set 5


This looks like it came off the same blog as the previous picture: http://k1world2.seesaa.net/article/397493480.html
Seems he managed to find another one of these machines in a different location. The picture is small, but it looks to be in much better condition.

Picture set 6


From here: http://ameblo.jp/toufuya-line/entry-11356572164.html
It's kind of a long post so you'll have to do a fair bit of scrolling to get to it. Once again, this is the unit located in Tokyo Tower. This particular blogger was nice enough to take some very large shots of the machine, including a close-up of the Bowser figure. The machine looks seriously banged up, and poor Bowser is missing his arms!

Captions:

スーパーマリオワールドのクッパ退治。クッパにボールを当てるゲームだが、
もう、休んでもいいんだよクッパ…およそ20年、毎日毎日ボールをぶつけられて満身創痍になりつつも、それでもなお笑顔でいるクッパにまた目頭が熱くなるが、そこは男の子、我慢我慢。

From here: http://ameblo.jp/fukurock2969/entry-11233684203.html
It's yet another photo of that same machine in Tokyo Tower. This shot is clear enough that you can see something interesting: The stock picture of Iggy has green hair and Lemmy has pink hair. This isn't the first time I've seen this. I've found other bits of Mario merch from that same general time period that give Iggy and Lemmy these particular hair colors. You don't supposed this influenced Iggy's redesign in NSMBWii, do you?

Blogger's caption:
よく見て、クッパの手がない!もう退治済みのようなのでやめました。
なんかかわいそう。。
スーパーマリオワールドって、スーファミの超初期ですよね。。
むしろよく生き残っていると言うべきか。
展望台にのぼるチケットとか売ってるのかなー。

From here: http://ameblo.jp/happinpc2/entry-10247647470.html
Sorry to disappoint after the last one, but this picture isn't that big. He did have a few words to say about it, at least:

メロンマンは、クッパたいじに行くで!

マリオに代わってメロンマンやねん

しかしクリボーの動きが意外にわかりにくいで

ノコノコなんて、いきなりこっち振り替えったりするからなぁ

ちなみにメロンマンが認める強敵は、雲に乗ってて、トゲがあるノコノコを投げるキャラやなぁ


奴は強敵やで

まぁしかしキノコがそんなに好きではなかったからキノコ好きになれる良いきっかけかも知れん


よーし頑張って行くでー
Finally we have a YouTube video!


Wherever it's located, this machine looks to be in really good condition! Based on what I'm seeing here it looks like the Bowser figure's mouth opens up. Are you supposed to hit Bowser or throw the balls into his mouth? I really can't tell.

All those who see this post, please do yourself and this wiki a favor and save this video.

Will post more soon...

From Arcade History: http://www.arcade-history.com/?n=super-mario-world-mario-attack&page=detail&id=23716

They say "1 of 4", "2 of 4", etc. but I can't seem to find the fourth one. Did he take it down...?

Most importantly, he took a Vine of it! https://vine.co/v/Mxw0FrjVEZP

Unfortunately it's just a short clip of the attract mode. He didn't bother to really explain what the game even does. Still, that might be the only footage of this game on the entire Internet, so if anybody knows how to save a Vine, please let me know!

It's something I'vwe been mulling for a while as part of our social media expansion, but I'm thinking the staff could maybe create a Mariowiki youtube account to host mirrors of all these footage of obscure things as well as anything else interesting that's submitted to us.

will talk to the others about this

So I'm gonna TRY to help with these translations. There's lots of kanji (not as bad as technical reports and interviews, at least) so it takes a lot of time, which I don't generally have an abundance of, so progress will be slow, however. I'm gonna start with the quotes posted in here, and then maybe try tackling the linked-to blogs later on, but no promises.

Up to 1-4 bets can be made. Put in the medals and the characters over the buttons will light up, for every [medal] a bet can be made. Because the bet button allotments are 2, 4, 6, 8, 16-0 special roles can happen. (or something like that)

マリオワールド:バンプレスト製

Mario World: Made by Banpresto

Put in one medal and you can bet with the bet buttons (the 4 buttons on the left). Each bet is only one bet, allotments on the left are 2, 4, 6, 8, the best special role is 16. You stop the roulette yourself, so it happens to be a machine that causes an illusion that it's easy to win. (again roughly)

バンプレストもついにマリオに参入!

Banpresto also finally entered the Mario [market]! It uses a lot of Mario artwork [to make for a] lively design. It's a Mini Piccadily-like medal game. (I really have no idea what a tiny British car has to do with this...)



Terebidenwa: Super Mario World
てれびでんわ スーパーマリオワールド
Television-phone Mario World

1990年にバンプレストより発売されたキッズアミューズメント機「てれびでんわ」 の「スーパーマリオワールド」版。
その名の通り、テレビ画面の付いた電話機のような形をしており、 受話器でキャラクターとおはなしし、問題を解きながら物語を進めていくゲーム。
筐体の大きさは、高さ128cm、横・奥50cm、重さ28kg。
このシリーズは他にも「ドラえもん」や「アンパンマン」など様々なキャラクターで出されていた。
In 1990 a "Super Mario World"-edition "TV-phone" Kid's Amusement machine went on sale from Banpresto. As the name suggests, it's in the form of a TV screen added to a phone machine, talk to characters with the phone receiver, [and] while solving questions, the story progresses [in this] game. The size of the cabinet is 128 cm high, 50 cm deep / wide, 28 kg in weight. Various characters have come out of this series, like "Doraemon" and "Anpanman". (well-known Japanese kid's series)

■ゲーム内容
100円玉をコイン投入口に入れると筐体下部からカードが出てくるので、 カードを取り「カード入りぐち」にカードを入れるとゲームスタート。
「1.めいたんていマリオ」「ピーチひめをすくえ!」の2種類のゲームモードがあり、 「1」はパズル系、「2」はアクション系の問題が出される。 1・2・3のボタンを使って回答していく。回答を間違えても物語は進んでいくため、 ゲームオーバーになることはない。ゲームをクリアすると、最後にカードがもらえる。
カードの紹介はまたいつか別ページにて。
- Game contents
Put a 100 yen coin in the slot and a card comes out of the bottom of the cabinet, take the card and put it in the "card entrance" [and then the] game starts. "1. Famed Detective Mario" "[2.] Save Princess Peach" are the two kinds of game modes, "1." [is] a puzzle system, "2." [is] an action system, [and related] questions are issued. 1, 2, 3 buttons are used to reply. Even if the answer is wrong, in order for the story to continue, it is not game over (I think?). Clear the game and you get the card at last. Introduction of the card will be on another page sometime.

If there's anyone who remembers this, they are a considerable "core Mario fan". Banpresto-made "TV phone" cabinets were used in game centers. Going by the name of "TV Phone", while having fun conversing with Mario, clearing minigames along the way, certainly facing an attack by Bowser. (or something) Well, "conversation" in name only, [more like] "Mario endlessly spouting words", I think in Japanese. In short, "the only speaker is the phone handset part". It says the game is over and the card is discharged. (this whole paragraph was evil and I gave up on a couple chunks, but overall, this is what it said) "THE kid's stuff", yeah well it's targeted at kids, particularly. But I want to play for the first time in a long while, back to [being] a kid at heart. There are a few other variations [to be found], like a Doraemon version, Dragon Ball version, and a later Pokemon version.

Glowsquid: That would be really good, if only so we'd have a way to preserve this stuff before it vanishes. I'm considering showing some of these machines to the guys behind MAME and see if maybe I can kickstart an organized effort to dump them.

Walkazo: It's ok if it's too rough for you. I know somebody who could do on-point translations in a snap, it's just that he's not always available and may not be willing to do this much text at one time.

Dokidoki Mario Chance!
ドキドキマリオチャンス!

Release date: 2003, according to some of the sites I'm about to link.

This one looks like another mechanical roulette machine, similar to 'Mario World' from that first post I made. Main difference is that this one's themed around Mario Party 4 instead of Super Mario World.

From here: http://www.am-j.co.jp/newmachine/200305/005.html
This game's recent enough that it has a page on a website that lists amusement machines. Here's the written summary:

ニンテンドーゲームキューブの人気ソフト「マリオパーティ4」のキャラクターたちを採用したメカメダルシリーズ第2弾。プレイヤーは、投入口にメダルを入れ、フィールド上で回転するチャンスゾーンを狙って、レバーを引いてメダルを発射する。打ち出されたメダルは、フィールド内で星に軌道を変えられて、思わぬ方向に転がるという演出が子供たちをゲームに熱中させる。メダルがチャンスゾーンに入ると、正面の大型ルーレットが回転。ランプが止まった枚数分のメダル払い出し。ハズレはなく、最大50枚のメダル獲得のチャンスがある。盤面中央の人気キャラクター「マリオ」の人形が高いアイキャッチ効果を生み出す。
And here's the technical specifications:

Sadly this picture is watermarked, but you'll be interested to know it's from Famitsu's website: http://www.famitsu.com/game/news/1138631_1124.html
I'm kinda surprised I didn't find any reports on any other machines like this on there, although this particular post also notes a near-identical Kirby machine. Here's what they had to say:

また、『マリオパーティ4』のイメージで彩られた3月発売予定のメダルゲーム"ドキドキマリオチャンス"や、おなじみカービィのミニフィギュアがゲットできるマシン"プチポンキャラシリーズ星のカービィ2ルーレット"も好評。2003年の春もたくさんのゲームキャラクターグッズに出会えそうだ。

Of course, can't have a party (especially not a Mario Party) without A-SUMA: http://www.a-suma.com/old/mg/mm1.htm
Here's what Kikai said about it:

「マリオパーティ4」のメダルゲーム、バンプレストから発売された「ドキドキマリオチャンス!」
投入口にメダルを入れてレバーを弾き、中央にあるチャンスゾーンに入ればルーレットスタート。 ルーレットが止まった所の数字の数だけメダルがもらえるのだ。もらえるメダルは最大50枚!(ハズレ無し)
フィルード上には星がいくつか設置されており、メダルの軌道が変えられてしまう。

Finally here's a YouTube video!


I think this same video might also be on NicoNico, but I couldn't view it as I don't have an account there. Even after watching this I'm not exactly sure how this game works. In any case, save it if you can. Please.

Still a few more posts to go...

Super Mario Kart Dokidoki Race

Release date: 1994 according to the video description I have.

In my searches I've seen various other machines that look similar to this one, so I'm guessing they work like those. Its appearance is pretty difficult to explain, so I'll let the pictures and video speak for it.

From here: http://k1world2.seesaa.net/article/181044224.html
I've referenced this same blog in my previous posts. He didn't have much to say about it. This is literally the only blog post I could find regarding this game. Thankfully he took pretty decent pictures of it.

This is from the same page I got the 'Mario World' flyer: http://www.a-suma.com/old/salepromo/flier/mf-ac.htm
Naturally it's tiny, so the best I got here is Kikai's text:

「スーパーマリオカート」のレースゲーム。
どのキャラが勝つか予想し、当たれば配当が貰えるというモノ。
アトラスが販売していたらしい。
Lastly, here are some videos:


This YouTube video looks like it was posted by the same guy who posted the video I linked in my previous post. Judging by what I see here, the little karts move pretty slowly. I'm not sure if you control them or not. I think maybe you simply bet on them? It's really hard to tell. Whatever the case, I advise you to save it.

Here's a NicoNico video by a different uploader: http://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm24271966
Unfortunately, I'm unable to view it since I don't have an account. Hopefully somebody who does have an account will be able to archive it.

Only one more Banpresto game left...

That's good. That's one video out of the way.

Now I give you the last machine (that I know of) produced by Banpresto:

Super Mario World no Popcorn Hanbaiki
SUPER MARIO WORLD のポップコーン販売機

Note that I don't know if this is the machine's actual title. Information on this is extremely limited and only one site I found referred to it by name at all. I also certainly couldn't find a release date for it.

Picture set 1


This comes from this post again: http://mariofannfumiya.blog105.fc2.com/blog-entry-164.html
If you look at some of my previous posts you can see this machine visible in the background of various photos of the other machines at "Mario Factory". So far, this is the only one of these machines I've been able to find. The guy didn't even remark on it.

Picture set 2


From this post: http://gk.q-q-q-q.com/?paged=23
This guy at least took a large enough picture and said something about it. The machine looks very similar to SegaSonic Popcorn Shop (for those of you who know what that is). The machine itself says "Super Mario World" in the standard logo and "Popcorn" in katakana, so I'm not sure what the actual title is supposed to be. This is the same machine as the one in the previous picture, and these two posts are the only coverage I've ever found regarding this machine. The title I put down at the top of this post comes from this guy's caption, as you'll see here:

SUPER MARIO WORLD のポップコーン販売機。ちょこんと座ったヨッシーがかわいい。
I'm terrified that this really might be the only one of these machines left, since I can't find anybody else who's heard of it. That would suck major balls for those of us who want to archive this stuff.

And that concludes my info dump for Banpresto's machines (that I could find, anyway). If there are any more of these out there, then I have yet to find out about them. For now, this is all I got. If any of you guys ever find anything new regarding these machines, be they the ones in this thread or ones that I've yet to discover, don't hesitate to post what you have here.

Next time I'll be back with a thread about Konami, so don't go away!
 
Hey Borp, you got me ot make a reply here. :p

Have you ever thought to post this on a MAME collector's forum of any kind, by the way? Not that I'm certain which one is most appropriate, but hey, SegaSonic Popcorn Shop's going around now, so they'd definitely take interest.

I have been considering exactly that. Of the nine games I have listed here, only four of them look like proper "video" games that use PCBs. Those being:

  • Televidenwa Super Mario World
  • Būbū Mario
  • Mario Undoukai
  • Super Mario Attack

The rest all appear to be entirely mechanical.

If you want to draw attention to dumping those games, Mameworld would be your best bet methink.

Also, the Youtube channel I was talking about has been created. I won't be archiving right away, but make a tidy list of Niconico/Youtube stuff you want preserved and I'll see what I can do when my work shift ends tomorrow.
